Why use an integrated backup appliance?

Still purchasing software licenses to back up VMware virtual environments? When problems occur, it’s hard to tell whether you should seek help from software or hardware vendors, not to mention costly license fees. Why not get a solution that complements software with hardware such as Active Backup for Business (ABB)?

Do I need to pay for VM backup?

Other than spending large IT budget, buying licenses might cause the following problems:


Hard to find the right person for help

When backup tasks fail, software vendors might ask you to turn to hardware manufacturers, and then they start to pass the buck to each other. You never know when you can really solve the problem.


High costs and various billing methods

Backup software for VMs in the market can charge you based on the number of CPU sockets or VM hosts, let alone additional fees required for advanced features, which can be confusing and pricey.
Take backing up 5 VMs for example, ABB can save over 50% of deployment cost in the first year compared with purchasing software licenses.
